User Reviews

Andy writes and stars in a highly embarrassing play...and falls for the drama teacher to boot.
16 July 2020 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

Andy Hardy is, as usual, an embarrassing teen to watch in "Andy Hardy Gets Spring Fever". Why? Well, he's fallen in love with his drama teacher and now he's acting insufferable after having written a play for his high school. It really is rather cringe-worthy...even compared to the other Andy Hardy films. Trust me on this...it's a bit painful to watch!

The Hardy films usually have several plots going on simultaneously. Other plots involve Polly (Ann Rutherford) having a handsome Ensign and Olympic champion staying with her family as well as Judge Hardy's unwise decision to invest in a local Bauxite mine run by some apparent swindlers.

Overall, this is an okay entry into the series but certainly not among the best. Most of the problem is the creepy romance Andy wants with this much older teacher...which today seems even creepier.
